Publication date: 16/12/15


The monitoring committee of the Interreg VA Upper Rhine Program has approved funding for three joint projects at the Upper Rhine universities.
The two proposals “European Campus – Cross-Border Structures” and “Upper Rhine Cluster for Sustainability Research” were submitted jointly by the Universities of Basel, Freiburg, Upper Alsace, and Strasbourg as well as the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology within the context of Eucor – The European Campus. In the case of the proposal “SERIOR,” submitted by the University of Koblenz and Landau, all of the Eucor universities are project partners. The universities will receive a total of 5.5 million euros from the European Union for the projects: “These proposals mark the beginning of a project that will transform the European higher education landscape. We are building up the first European university, and we are happy that the EU is supporting us in this endeavor,” says Prof. Dr. Hans-Jochen Schiewer, President of Eucor and Rector of the University of Freiburg. European Campus – Cross-Border Structures The central Interreg* proposal “European Campus – Cross-Border Structures” involves the implementation of structural measures for the joint development of existing potential at the universities. The EU will provide 2 million euros in funding for the project. Upper Rhine Cluster for Sustainability Research A second Interreg proposal deals with the creation of an Upper Rhine cluster in one of the research foci of the European Campus: sustainability research. This cluster will concentrate on the general theme “governance of sustainable growth,” encompassing ecological, social, and economic sustainability. SERIOR The Eucor universities, the University of Koblenz and Landau, and further project partners intend to establish a trinational graduate academy on the topic of risk management and risk appraisal. A joint qualification program for junior researchers and a knowledge transfer program with businesses and political organizations will open up new research potential on the Upper Rhine. The EU will provide 1.8 euros in funding for the project. *Interreg is a joint initiative of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) designed to promote cross-border cooperation in Europe.
